Wisdom of Chesterton - Grateful for Cousins

"When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude."     
~ G.K. Chesterton

As I mentioned we took a bit of a hiatus to the southern hemisphere of the Carolinas for a little R&R with Lee's side of the family. I'll admit packing up the car and kids and driving is super high on my priority list challenging. But we believe in doing work around this family so Papa and I took one for the team and committed to going {okay we committed a few months ago}. We could have gotten ourselves committed to a mental health institution after the terrific car ride down but that would not have been fun now would it? 

Anyways, enough complaining whining via cross through script. 

Family. Cousins. Games. Food. Playgrounds. Long walks. 

Just to name a few of the nondescript particulars (hey there's a fancy-dancy oxymoron) about this weekend that we are grateful for and we know we cannot and will not take for granted. 

E had a blast with her cousins per the usual. 

R played a lot by herself because she decided 5:15 was a fantastic time of day to get up… even though she was in a room WITHOUT WINDOWS!!!!!!!! She and Papa had some good papa-daugther bonding time. 

M was spoiled ROTTEN by all her aunties and Jibbe and cousins. 

Our girls are at the lower end of the age totem pole but when the Kibbe cousins unite you'd think that they were all from one family. #cousinlove

If I did a top five places where I'd like to buy a vacation house (when I win the lottery) would totally add Old Field to my list. It was quiet. Safe for the kids to ride bikes. Great pool. Fun times.
